Here are a few inspiration boards to help get your brain kicking. Throw together some decorations with bright colored tissue and use all of the bright colors you have in your home to make a great last-minute Cinco De Mayo celebration.

If you just want a little taste of Mexico this Cinco De Mayo, please try “The Best Tecate Ever”. My favorite Mexican food restaurant serves something very similar to this tasty concoction.
First, frost up a glass in the freezer– it needs to be VERY frosted. Second, use half a lime to rim the glasses and squeeze the rest of the juice into the glass. Just drop the half into the glass. Next, fill the frosted mug with Tecate and drink it in!
